SWEET VICTORY FOR DUTTA/CHAUDHARI AT INDIAN 420 NATIONALS
Young guns Aryaman Dutta and Arosh Chaudhari of the RBYC showed their mastery of the waves in Mumbai Harbour, India, on Sunday's final day at the 17th All India Sailing Championship for the 420 Class.
The two 19 year olds stamped their class with a clean slate, winning the last three races in tricky sea conditions off the INWTC and clinching the title.
Aryaman, a student of Bombay International School, has teamed with US based Arosh to compete in the highly competitive International 420 Class boat and the two have set sights on the 420 World Championships in Perth in December this year. Second placed Diya Correa and Amit held off experienced young sailor Vishnu Saravanan and his rookie crew Abhimanyu Kanwar to secure their silver medal.
Surprise package of the day were the duo of Ananya Chouhan and Ananya Siwatch from Hyderabad who sailed extremely well to bag the girls title and the Spring Chicken Cup for the best junior team.
